Jimmy Fallon and his house band The Roots performed the song in its entirety with Grande using cardboard instruments from Nintendo Labo.

Band individuals utilized diverse Toy-Con from the Variety and Robot units. Tariq used the Toy-Con Fishing Rod, Kamal and James used the famous Toy-Con Piano, Stro was rocking two Joy-Con to make different drum sounds and Questlove used the Robot Kit to perform the kick-drum and high-hat.


In a twist on the popular "Classroom Instruments" segment, the 24-year-old singer joined host Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to play her new single entirely using Nintendo's Labo line of cardboard Switch accessories. I love that Nintendo does stuff like this. The tech definitely has a lot of potential and, in the right hands, can be used to make some pretty incredible things.

We made a full-on band using Labo.


"It was totally freaky and such a gamble", Fallon told IGN. "Whatever you dream of, you can make it". "We'll help you do it'". Not only was each project a great building experience but my daughter spent more time on the Switch playing with his creations than she has since we got the portable console.

Ariana Grande's "No Tears Left To Cry" is one of the hottest songs on Earth right now, and Nintendo smartly is getting in on that to promote Nintendo Labo.


The video segment has been posted on The Tonight Show's Youtube channel and has garnered over half a million views in its first few hours.
